Progress in development of an interferometric oil manometer

S. Ehlers, W. Sabuga


At PTB, a new interferometric oil manometer for the measurement of pressures below 2 kPa, is in development. This paper describes how the main quantities, length and liquid density, are determined, both in-situ, the latter for the first time in a primary pressure standard. The key features of both methods are presented.
